Cell's EPO improves your riding, without drugs! Endurance Performance Optimisation (EPO) Geometry helps to reduce rider fatigue and allow you to ride harder, for longer. Incorporating a relatively slack head angle and longer fork offset, together with a taller headtube and longer chain stays results in optimised stability and all-day comfort.
This lightweight 6061 aluminium tubing has three different thicknesses throughout each tube, saving weight from the centre of the tubes and improving strength at the joins, just where it's needed. Learn more...

Using hydroforming to reshape aluminium tubing both saves weight and increases frame strength Learn more...
Using hydroforming to reshape this light weight aluminium tubing both saves weight and increases frame strength. Reducing material where less strength is required saves unnecessary weight. Reshaping the tubes can increase weld area at key junctions such as the head tube and bottom bracket, hence distributing forces over a larger area.

By using Shimano's pressfit bottom bracket system, the bearing cups are no longer threaded into the frame, which saves weight and increases performance. Learn more...
By using Shimano's pressfit bottom bracket system, the bearing cups are no longer threaded into the frame, which removes the most common cause of Creaky Bike Syndrome (CBS) and provides a wide bearing stance to ensure effective power transfer, all while reducing weight.
Stiffness increases confidence and performance. Utilising a 142x12mm thru axle increases lateral stiffness throughout your rear wheel and frame. Learn more...
A 142x12mm thru axle increases lateral stiffness throughout your rear wheel and frame. When putting down a hard burst of power or railing through a corner, this increased stiffness results in superior control, confidence and speed. The 142x12mm Rock Shox Maxle is just as fast and easier to use than a traditional QR skewer.

Disc brakes provide consistent braking performance in all conditions, whether dry and dusty or wet and muddy. Learn more...
Disc brakes provide consistent braking performance in all conditions, whether dry and dusty or wet and muddy. Hydraulic brakes have greater modulation and increased power when compared to cable activated discs. At the same time, they also require less adjustment or maintenance. Larger rotors provide increased power, hence some bikes are equipped with a 180mm front rotor to provide more power where it's needed.
Our verdict? The Brunswick is a jack-of-all-trades drop-bar touring bike at a brilliant price. No matter what kind of riding you’re thinking about, it can handle it.
"Neat touches abound, including the ability to carry three bottles, a full complement of front and rear rack mounts, drillings for mudguards and fully enclosed cable housings that run underneath the down tube."
"we belted the Brunswick around our local singletrack with no drama, surprising the riders of more off-road orientated machines in the process"
"The Brunswick is a real Swiss Army knife of a machine."
The Australian direct to consumer brand has had a bit of a renaissance in the past few years and is now offering a range of bikes that perform as well, if not better, than those which cost twice as much.
"Whether it was tight corners on a 'cross race course, flowing singletrack or fast descents on dirt roads the Brunswick’s handling was unflappable."
"We had absolutely no trouble with the Rival 1x11 drivetrain and found the 11-36T cassette and 40T chainring offered miles of range."
BikeRadar verdict: "The Brunswick doesn't need flashy parts or a big brand name behind it. Instead, it relies on good design and smart spec which makes for a super-fun ride"
Local Sydney brand Cell Bikes have been winning a lot of praise for their obscenely good value-for-money CX bikes, and we’ve nabbed their top-model Brunswick 2.0 to test.
"Versatile frame features for commuting, racing, touring or gravel"
"CX racers will also appreciate the flattened top tube and the down tube routed cables, both of which make it easy to shoulder the bike"
These well-thought out bikes are designed for ‘proper’ riding, and backed up by impressively good value pricing, they’re developing a solid reputation. This is especially the case with the Brunswick, their locally designed aluminium bike with a cyclocross and gravel riding focus.
"Use it as a road bike, a commuter bike, a gravel bike, a cyclocross bike, a touring bike, bike-packing bike, a bike bike."
"Through the thickest mud and the driest roads, the single-ring drivetrain never missed a beat."
"We loved our time on this thing, it opened up possibilities and had us exploring trails we’d not consider on a mountain bike, so we’re all about it."
Here in Australia, Cell Bikes has consistently impressed us throughout the year. Their consumer-direct business model hits near criminal price points, but most importantly, the ride quality is competitive with the big brands.
"This cyclocross bike proved to be so versatile and so well priced, that it's a worthy contender for anyone's second bike."
"From regular commuting, to CX racing to just exploring gravel back roads, the Brunswick does it all without fuss."
"I'd give Cell Bikes my 'Most Improved' award without hesitation."
Suitable for everyday commuting and weekend cyclocross racing, the shy-looking Brunswick screams value. Regardless of discipline, this is the most fun we’ve had on a $1,400 bike
"A bike that behaves respectably well off-road or on a racetrack, rides all-day on gravel roads and yet commutes to work as if that's its only purpose."
"A big positive of the Brunswick is its smooth ride quality."
"Cell has used its direct-buy business strategy to offer a near-flawless spec at an impressive weight."
Bang-for-buck, thoughtful design and versatility: Iain Treloar tests a locally-designed 'cross bike.
"Not just a good bike for the price; it's a good bike, full stop."
"The frame, a design exclusive to Cell, is both well finished and well mannered."
"Handling on descents and tight corners is excellent, it's stable and predictable and it accelerates well."
"Comfortable for longer rides and brief commutes alike, without sacrificing any liveliness or steering response."
Cell have worked hard on the Brunswick, with the aim of creating a multipurpose bike that can handle a range of uses. So, how does it go? Well, after a few weeks with the Brunswick, we have got a lot of good things to say about it.
"Overall the Brunswick was pretty close to perfect for the commute."
"Awesome fun. Need more explanation than that?"
"Commute, race or tour, the Cell Brunswick gets it all done at a price that won't blow the bank."
One more confession. Last one I promise... This is the cheapest bike I've ridden in about 10 years, so I wasn't expecting much.
"On to the pave' section and the bike starts to show its true colours, the supple sidewalls of the Vittorias conform over cobbles whilst the carbon fork and carbon seat post do a reasonable job of damping out some of the vibrations."
"Cross slopes are tackled with ease, even getting a little airtime over a few jumps is shrugged off with a feeling of control."
"If you're looking for a commuter that can get you into CX, or that N+1 bike for those gravel grinds – I highly recommend this bike."
